Pollie goes plain at Perth fashion fest
EAST Metropolitan MLC Alyssa Hayden launched her second Perth Fashion Festival program at the Art Gallery of WA last week.
The politician impressed the crowd last year, including festival founder Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan, at last year’s launch with her shoes but feared she let everyone down this year.
Alyssa said she knew Mariella would mention her shoes and apologised for the plain print this year, “but I had to match them with my outfit”.
She said the PFF program launch was a hard event for politicians “and that’s why they send a woman”.
“We think about what we’ll wear… I woke up thinking what I will wear,” she said.
Plain speaking: MLC Alyssa Hayden.
